non-objective candidates had a different opinion in the least -- at least three budget debates. >> meg whitman talked about lowering his sperps. >> given her lack of experience, i think some people maybe wanted to see that she understood the issues and that she would be prepared for the questions that were asked, and i feel she has to come away sort of pleased with missing her performance. >> jerry brown got a big llc tonight. >> if everybody in state service has worked as long as i have, the pension system overfunded by 72 -- by the way, if you electricity me governor, i won't collect until 2006. >> he mentioned they didn't even ask that. i'm independent because i'm not running for president.
